Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC)
Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC), a Sector Skill Council for the rubber sector set up by AIRIA (All India Rubber Industry Association) & ATMA (Automotive Tyre Manufacturer Association) in Collaboration with NSDC is focusing on skill development & training needs of the sector. RSDC’s key objectives are conducting research, quality assurance and improving delivery mechanism for skilling and up-skilling professionals in the rubber sector.
RSDC is focused on standardization of job roles through developing National occupational standards (NOS) for the rubber sector. RSDC had identified the critical job roles and conducted the NOS pilot project survey in tyre & non-tyre manufacturing companies for their valuable inputs. Another important activity is to conduct skill gap analysis (SGA) research to analyze prevailing skill gaps (both qualitative and quantitative) in the demand and supply side and facilitate the skill development initiatives for capacity building to meet the requirement of the rubber industry.
RSDC’s delivery model for imparting skills:
- Involving existing public or private training institutes who will be assessed for quality standards, adequacy of upgraded equipment and their ability to transition to the newly developed competency framework.
- Affiliate the contents and curriculum which has to be in line with NOS developed.
- Supervise the Training of Trainers in each of these institutes and ensure adequate trainers are trained and certified before the Institute starts their training batches.
- Certification and accreditation will be the key process through which the RSDC will ensure standards and quality of training and trained manpower.

Objectives of the RSDC
- Setting up LMIS to assist planning and delivery of training – the first step in bridging the skills gap would be develop a sector specific and credible Labour Market Information System (LMIS) which would provide the basis on which to plan for the skill development initiatives in the sector across various regions.
- Identification of skill development needs and preparing a catalogue of skill types – it is important to create a catalogue of standardised skill types across the industry to develop a common language and understanding amongst all stake holders. The skill development needs of the sector will then, emerge through the LMIS as well continuous interaction with all stake holders.
- Develop a sector skill development plan and maintain skill inventory – a comprehensive skill development plan will have to be developed based on the identified skill development needs so as to best utilise all available resources as well as take necessary steps to build adequate capacities in the training infrastructure.
- Developing skill competency standards and qualifications – one of the main tasks of the SSC will be to develop and maintain the National Occupation Standards (NOS) of all the skill types in their sector. These will lay down the skill competency standards and qualification for each job role.
- Standardisation of affiliation and accreditation process as well as participation in affiliation, accreditation, standardisation – the main role of the SSC would be to standardise the accreditation and certification process to maintain quality in the training process as well as trained manpower.
- Capacity creation in skill development by encouraging maximum private players participation in skill development as well as creating skill development infrastructure.
- Plan and execute training of trainers – to ensure maximum coverage of the workforce in the skill development initiatives, adequate number of trainers have to be available at all times. This requires a planned intervention to train and certify adequate number of trainers before they are actually required.
- Promotion of academies of excellence – A few model training institutes with best-in-class infrastructure, processes and faculty would need to developed as Academies of Excellence, to laydown standards in training for other players in the sector to follow/ emulate.
